    John Entwistle's Frankenstein Precision. Used on so many great Who recordings!

    And the quadraphonic system that makes the magic... you know, if one then the other...

    chris squire's rickenbacker RM 1999. i would be willing to settle for the "fish out of water" bass.

    That would be a hard call. But something from any of these guys...
    Paul McCartney
    John Entwistle
    John Paul Jones
    Geddy Lee
    Chris Squire
    Roger Waters
    Geezer Butler

    But if I had my exact choice. I'd want the bass used to record Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here album, specifically the one used to record the title track. Not because of fame, but because of what the album, and particularly that song has meant to me.

    Noel Redding's Jazz Bass, it saw the entire Hendrix revolution up close and retains Jimi's DNA

    The P-Bass used by Geezer Butler on Black Sabbath's first record (That bass isn't the same one used on "Paranoid", BTW) and the diode equipped Jack Bruce's EB-3.

    Without question, this one...
    Of course, I'd have to return it to it's rightful owner...he's been looking for it for a long, long time.

  17. At least that model is somewhat affordable. The full custom Warwick Bootsy SpaceBass would really cost a bundle.

    Can't believe it took 15 posts before someone mentioned Jamerson's Funk Machine. I have a fantasy about stumbling across it at a thrift shop somewhere.

    Though, honestly, if I were to get my hands on it, I would donate it to the Smithsonian.
